A fabulous stop for any music lover. In the heart of Soulsville USA and located at the site of the original Stax Recording Studios the museum pays tribute to Stax legendary artist roster including unknowns who would become icons, cranking out a massive catalog of smash soul hits by the likes of Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, the Staple Singers, Wilson Pickett, Luther Ingram, Albert King, the Bar-Kays, Booker T. & the MG’s, Johnnie Taylor, Rufus and Carla Thomas, and dozens of other non-Stax artists who contributed to the soul music landscape. The Otis Redding tribute is incredible.

Center of Thriller Exhibit Case
hit record

Shown here is the center of the exhibit case documenting William and Mary’s Guinness World Record for the largest, simultaneous dance of the Michael Jackson hit Thriller. On April 19, 2009, 242 faculty, staff, and students broke the record with a simultaneous dance that took place on the Sunken Garden. The event was orchestrated by Kevin Dua, 2009 Senior Class President.

The following is from the label copy in the exhibit case:

It was closer to 2 p.m. than midnight and something not remotely evil was lurking in the Sunken Garden, which was not remotely dark. Students, faculty, and staff of the College of William and Mary gathered to dance on the afternoon of April 19, 2009. Orchestrated by Senior Class President Kevin Dua, the dancers hoped to break the world record for the largest dance of the Michael Jackson hit Thriller. As the first words of Thriller, “It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark,” boomed out of the speakers, some 242 William and Mary people began dancing. After reviewing film of the event, officials from the Guinness Book of World Records notified Dua in May 2009 that all participants complied with the rules and counted in the attempt, so the College officially broke the previous record of 147. With the untimely death of Michael Jackson (1958-2009) in June 2009, the College’s attempt at the record was the last one while Jackson was still alive.

Shown in this case are clippings of the event from USA Today and The Scotsman, a newspaper in Edinburgh, Scotland; the hat Dua wore during the event; photos from the record breaking attempt; and the certificate for the record from Guinness World Records.
